We take you to Henan province in China where a ‘friendly’ between China and Brazil’s national teams degenerated into a melee. China was angry over a foul on Zhang Qingpeng which coach Bob Donewald, a former assistant with the Hornets and Cavs, protested via a chain of expletives. Two techs to Donewald later, and players were kicking and punching each other. China’s players wouldn’t let up, attacking the Brazilians on their way to the locker room. Several players were injured, and Brazil quickly decided to drop out of the tournament.
